Happy December 1st! Wow! It is so hard to believe! It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas too! Today, I am super excited to show you my project! I saw this adorable Christmas advent calendar for sale for the My Digital Studio (it is also available in the Décor Elements too). Well for the last week, I have been pondering how I was going to use this adorable set. For the life of me, I couldn’t come up with anything! Of course, when it is time for bed on Monday, I finally came up with the idea! Haha! My hubby couldn’t believe I was getting out of bed to make this calendar! But here it is and I hope you enjoy it as much as I had fun making it!
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think! 🙂
Inspired by Stampin’ Tips:
- My Digital Studio Christmas Countdown Stamp Brush Set is the set I used for my center image. Don’t forget when you print to use the best quality on your printer. Your image will turn out so much better.
- For the numbers, I printed them all out on Whisper White Card Stock. I plan on adhering the numbers with poster tape or blue tack. This (I hope) will allow for easy changing of the numbers.
- I carefully sniped out my oval and then centered it on a piece of Old Olive 12×12 card stock. And then layered it using Cherry Cobbler.
- Jolly Holiday Designer Series Paper added these amazing stripes and was layered again on another 12×12 Very Vanilla Card stock.
- Deck the Halls Big Designer Buttons was added on each corner. The bows in the center of the button's is Very Vanilla 1/8” Taffeta Ribbon.
- To make sure my ribbon didn’t tear the paper, I added two Jumbo Eyelets for extra security. Pear Pizzazz Stitched Poly Ribbon was used to hold my sign up and I added two little bows for decoration.
- My darling hubby put a nail in the wall but I also adhered the sign using some more Poster tape.
